His main character, Rollie, was interesting and upright, but with enough humanity to make him seem quite real. I enjoyed his struggles and his want of female companionship. His back story was intriguing too.
For me, Driskell's antagonists are usually his most interesting characters. Here, Bernd is one of his best ever. Refined and handsome (and Prussian...an interesting touch) the guy is a true sicko with a wicked sense of humor. He made me laugh aloud several times.
Vivien was quite memorable too. But Maria, the conflicted female nearly stole the show. She was a tad over the top at times but added spice to the story. I really liked both women.
Driskell added in the requisite amount of sex and violence I've come to expect from his books, and enough tertiary characters to make this big read go very quickly.
My only criticisms would be the lack of much World War 2 side-story. He sprinkled in mentions here and there (his research and time period details were very good) and with the setting of Panama I guess there wasn't much more he could tell us. I also felt the plot was a bit complex in points. I had to reread a few pages but who knows, I might just not be smart enough to keep up. I'd call these criticisms minor as this is a tantalizing read.
The book itself was slightly similar to The Rhinemann Exchange by Robert Ludlum. Driskell's writing is easier and more "conversational" than Ludlum's. In fact, I'm not quite sure what other authors I would compare Driskell with.Read more ›
I hope Rollie is continued in a future story since this time in history is wide open as our intelligence agencies are just being their growth into modern day monsters with a vast number of untold, behind closed doors, under the counter deals created in these agencies uncontrolled by agents from all levels approved and otherwise.

This is a solid, satisfying read. The story is weak in a few spots, but the characters are compelling and well-developed, and the story is interesting enough to finish the book... Read morePublished 1 month ago by David MacGuire
Good pace. A few to many coincidental occurrences. Liked the way characters merged and surprises of their demise. Was not expecting it.
A few too many analogies. Read more
Thanks I love spy espionage thrillers and this kept me on the edge. I am very interested reading your other thrillers.

I read a lot during my travels. I particularly enjoy WWII espionage novels. While some are pedantic or predictable, Demon's Bluff kept me guessing until the very end. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Runner Dude
Very poorly written, mistake prone effort. All too many anachronistic patterns of speech and references to things that happened long after 1943 (when the story is set). Read morePublished 5 months ago by Vickie L. Browne
